Happy Valentine’s Day from The Long Island Museum to you! 
Shepard’s first milestone piece as a professional portrait painter was of his wife, Elizabeth Elliott Mount, completed in 1838, a year after they were married. This painting was exhibited in 1838 at the National Academy of Design. The next image is a letter composed to Shepard from his darling wife Elizabeth, who expresses her complete adoration for him. Below transcribes her loving words to her husband.

Elizabeth Elliot Mount to her husband Shepard Alonzo Mount,
.
. “Dear Shepard If in the space of one short week can effect so much of perfect happiness to me, what life do I have to look forward to in my days when I shall be enjoying your perpetual society; when I shall be more indissolubly thine. In expectation of this do I worship with more than Persian adoration the missing of that bright Sun of hope which shall dispel every cloud that hitherto enrapt my soul in what seemed an enduring dark; but as this happiness may now be mine. `Tis said to be the lot of humanity is to be continually after something we can never attain, and what desire have I beyond the wish of dwelling forever with you; none; no other thought can find a lodgment in the most distant ___ of my heart. Them pleasures I may never know, if I do not nothing shall ever rob me of the inescapable (sic) joy of loving you. No there are feelings which the ____ing hand of time, nor swift variety of scenes can never change”. May 15, 1827

Introducing the #LIMarts Artist of the Month for January 2019 - Linda Louis! ‘INHERIT THE LAND’ Series ‘Inherit the Land’ aims to establish a connection to nature as it existed, unblemished, before time began. The paintings shown here represent 18 in this series. 
My motivation is a reverence for our precious Earth and beyond … belief in environmental protection and respect for nature’s richness, beauty and resources. 
My wish is to offer a soul-cleansing virtual journey, a breather that initiates calm and offers you a window into a beautiful world.

I paint trees in my ‘Virgin Forest’ Series ….. marshlands, water and seaweed in ‘Figment’ Series ….. the moon in ‘Mother of Tides’ Series ….. the stars in ‘SunGoddess’ Series.

Journey with me to Earth, moon and stars and visit www.lindalouisart.com.

The kids have been on cloud nine since we arrived to NY last night. They were counting down the days to see both of our families. We spent an amazing day at the @longislandchildrensmuseum with my brothers. We found ourselves enjoying the interactive stations as much as the kids. Usually, we tend to observe the kids and explain the exhibits. It was nice to actually “do” engaging activities with the kids. Definitely highly recommend it!

I poked a wee bit of fun at museum boards in #thehighseason but off I go to another gala because when folks show up for the arts so do I. Tonight I’m wearing Armani. Ok, it’s just an old Fathers Day tie. But when it comes to glam, I believe in borrowed menswear. #longislandmuseum

Attended a symposium this weekend @limuseum on the Long Island silversmith, Elias Pelletreau (1726-1810). He apprenticed in Manhattan under Simeon Soumaine, where he learned current fashion trends and gained patronage connections. He spent the rest of his career as a rural craftsman and was a supporter of the patriot cause. 🇺🇸 Wish I could have captured some of the silver on display, but it’s so hard to shoot through the plexi! So instead here is a recreation of the type of space where Pelletreau would have worked.

A day in the life of Gina: Today I attended a symposium at the Long Island Museum entitled "Elias Pelletreau: Long Island’s Silversmith and Entrepreneur" (which has a corresponding exhibit that opened in September). Pelletreau had a small shop in Southampton that still exists today! Needless to say, I saw a lot of silver. Lol Pictured above from one of the presentations are some brandywine bowls (brandewijnkommen), which were used in Dutch households for serving a mixture of brandy and raisins at ceremonial occasions such as weddings and births. 😃 #eliaspelletreau #silversmith #silver #brandywinebowls #southampton #hamptons #longisland #newyork #history #longislandmuseum #stonybrook

I'm a big fan of this copper and wrought iron automotive sign that was originally in Jones Beach, Long Island in 1929. The sign presumably pointed to parking lots for drivers. 
So, the real reason I'm sharing this photo today is to remind everyone about the Robert Moses exhibit at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook (where I took this picture). The exhibit is closing THIS SUNDAY, so if you want to see this great exhibit on Moses and his work, get there before then!  #RobertMoses #LongIsland #JonesBeach #NewYork #sign #car #automobile #history #LongIslandMuseum #StonyBrookNY #JonesBeachNY #WantaghNY

From the Robert Moses exhibit at the Long Island Museum: these photos are of a model of the original art-deco design of the second Jones Beach Marine Theatre. Yes, it used to have a moat between the stage and the seats (and it was commonly incorporated into shows). The 8,500 seat concrete theatre was designed by Robert Moses and built between 1949 and 1952, primarily for Broadway style shows. (there was an earlier 10,000 seat theatre built by Moses there in 1935, but it was destroyed in a Hurricane in 1944.) Many operettas and musicals were put on at the theatre (it's opening night was a production of Strauss's A Night in Venice). Many opera singers and bandleaders performed regularly, such as Freeport's own Guy Lombardo (Lombardo's orchestra would play on a boat that was ferrying them to the stage during the show!) The theatre was built on Zachs Bay, to not take up large amounts of space. Moses incorporated the waterway into the design (the only access to the stage was via boat). During renovations in the early 1990s, the moat was filled in with more seats and a second level was added. 
In the late 1980s, the primary use of the theatre turned from musicals to rock concerts. This is primarily what it is used for today (and what, I'm sure, most people know it for.) #JonesBeach #Amphitheater #theatre #Theater #concert #music #RobertMoses #history #LongIsland #Nassau #NassauNY #NassauCounty #NewYork #GuyLombardo #beach #LongIslandMuseum #Concertvenue #operetta #musical #zachsbay #JonesbeachNY #artdeco

Garden City NY
Cradle of Aviation Museum is an aerospace museum located in Garden City, New York on Long Island to commemorate Long Island's part in the #historyofaviation. It is located on land once part of  #MitchelAirForceBase which, together with nearby  #RooseveltField and other airfields on the  #HempsteadPlains, was the site of many historic flights. So many seminal flights had occurred in the area that by the mid-1920s the cluster of #airfields was already dubbed the "Cradle of Aviation".

If you remember, I posted a study of Nancy Ness who is posing for me for the “Artist Painting Artist Exhibit” coming up early next year at the Long Island Museum. Although portraits are not my thing, I am most definitely enjoying this project as it unfolds. Kudos for Nancy! She's very patient.

Quick one: here's one of the original Art Deco light fixtures from Jones Beach in 1931. There were 12 originally, and they were all mounted on wooden polls along the central mall plaza. The glass fins help direct light. The Long Island State Parks Commission designed them and lent this one to the Long Island Museum for their Robert Moses exhibit.  #robertmoses #moses #jonesbeach #longisland #newyork #longislandmuseum #light #jonesbeachny #nassau #nassauny #history #nassaucounty #artdeco

An intricate polished granite fountain like this looks like it belongs in the middle of Manhattan. So what is it doing in the backyard of a Long Island museum? Well, it used to be in the middle of Manhattan! 
This 14 foot, 20 ton beaux arts horse fountain was constructed in 1880 at the intersection of Madison Avenue and 23rd Street. It was commissioned by Olivia Phelps Stokes of the ASPCA for a sum of $6000. You caught that I called it a horse fountain, right? It was meant for horses...mostly. When horses and carriages were super common on New York City streets, horses needed to drink water. Otherwise, they would get dehydrated and fall over and die (and if you think I'm joking, let me tell you...it happened... A LOT. Horses would lay dead in the streets, among the horse poop that no one bothered to clean up, spreading disease and everything else. Don't let anyone say the streets aren't cleaner and healthier since cars came.) Two of the troughs were meant for horses and one was meant for people. I don't know how you could tell the difference, or stop a horse from going to whichever one they wanted...or if people drank from it like they were bobbing for apples. Anyway, after cars became the main transportation in the streets and less and less horses were around the fountain became obsolete and an annoyance to drivers. The City removed it in 1957. 
The Long Island Museum at Stony Brook approached the City asking to take the fountain off their hands. They didn't want something as beautiful as this to sit in storage getting lost. The City gladly handed it over. The Museum gave it a full restoration in 1987. You can see it among other historic buildings in between the Smithsonian affiliate's art and carriage museums. #LongIsland #LongIslandMuseum #StonyBrook #StonyBrookNY #NewYork #history #Manhattan #fountain #horse #cars #horses #horsefountain #SuffolkNY #SuffolkCounty #NewYorkCity #NYC

There I am with my painting,©️Faith, Karen L Kirshner. All rights reserved. The Atlantic Gallery gave it an excellent placement in the gallery. It is unfortunate that a young man was taking a very careful close-up photo of the painting without my permission, and when I told him not to, he had already taken the picture didn’t apologize and just stole my image. It is copyright protected, so now I have to do a Google image search and see if it appears anywhere. But the problem is this guy could try to use it for his digital art, which is really theft. It is such a hassle keeping track of these people.. I don’t mind photos for authorized promotion at all, but I do mind when someone takes a picture of my work to use for their own work or in order to make a print for themselves (instead of buying a print from me). The guy could be putting it on the Internet without my name attached to it. That’s just wrong and unethical, and something should be done to prevent it. That was my only angst yesterday. I totally enjoyed the reception it was packed I have never seen a reception that full before. And the people who were there very lovely sophisticated people. This is the painting that received the best in show/1st place award at the National League of American pen women’s national tour read biennial exhibition this year. #art-people. #whiteroomgallerybh #gagosiangallery #gallery #heckschermuseum #longislandart #longislandmuseum #nassaucountymuseumofart #omnigallery #blinkartist #blinkartresource #artist #nyartists #nyartscene #nyartgallery #newyorknewyork #newyorker #hamptonsarthub #art_spotlight #life #famousartist #artcollector #artbuyers #artistsoninstagram
